Song of the Day – “New Music” Wednesday – “Henry Boy” – Bruce Springsteen

Springsteen has written an autobiography, Born to Run, and delivered an album to go with it – Chapter and Verse. This may be the oldest new song I’ve ever posted. It was cut in 1972, and is obviously an early Springsteen song, with rapid-fire, verbose lyrics.

Well the north side is for diamond-studded woman
Subtly selling their wares
And the west side is for debutantes
And would be millionaires
Oh the east side is for lost boys
Who know their moves too well
The south side is for gamblers, Henry boy
The train stops once for hell
It’s a hard world when they’re forcing you
To live your life out on Broadway
But Henry I’m sure you’re gonna like it well
